Jack Kevorkian called death doctor (Jack Kevorkian)

Jack Kevorkian (Jack Kevorkian) was born in Pontiac in 1928 as a child of Armenian immigrants. After graduating from Michigan University, I will work as a doctor in pathology at Detroit hospital. Since the 1980's, he began research on euthanasia, developed a self-made suicide device in 1989, started a suicide assistance activity of end stage disease patients, and has been discussing globally. Later, a total of 130 patients were killed by dying with suicide equipment, and they were called "murderers" "doctors of death". A videotape recording that the patient died of suicide on September 17, 1998 was published at the CBS program "60 Minutes", which is calling intense debate. The suicide device normally operates the device himself, but in this case the patient activated the device because the patient can not operate the device on its own. As a result, they are charged with murder charges immediately after airing and are guilty. It is made into a television movie, but I have not seen it yet so I'd like to see it. Star Doctor Death President Jack Kevokian's Truth (Wikipedia) Mr. Kazuhiro Nagao, Deputy Director of the Japan Dignity Death Association, said, "Living Will ( LW) is a fundamental human right that is commonplace in Europe and the United States. " In Asia, "In Taiwan, LW's legal security was made in 2000, 17 years passed after two revisions, passed through 16 years in Korea, and has been in effect since November 2017". When I was young, I read "Mr. Ruth Benedict's" Chrysanthemum and Sword "and Mr. Kenro Doi's" Amae Structure ", but Wikipedia has" Japanese Theory "organized. While there are also Japanese theories as cultural anthropology and sociological studies, there are also a number of articles written to emphasize the particularities of their own nation and their race by their own nationalism based on nationalistic sentiments . Temporarily called advanced country, what is it that the "maturity of democracy and fundamental human rights" has been retarded in the 21st century?
